Felicia is a trauma therapist who works with Deaf and hearing children, adolescents, and adults. In addition to Developmental Trauma/Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), her specialty is working with individuals who struggle with anxiety/panic/agoraphobia (which simply means you avoid doing things/going places because you fear having one of those awful panic attacks) which in some cases can be severe enough you do not leave home. Felicia is also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Brainspotting, and works with victims of abuse/neglect and other traumas including military trauma.
“We work as a team; you choose your goals, I help you reach them. I use CBT and Mind-Body techniques like Yoga and Mindfulness-Meditation so you feel calm and centered. I use Attachment-Focused EMDR for trauma, panic, and low self-esteem issues and have seen powerful results!” Felicia easily builds rapport with clients with her warmth, compassion, and down-to-earth style.
Felicia earned a BA in psychology from the University of North Carolina, and an M.Ed. in Counselor Education from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. In addition to being a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), she also just completed a Master’s in Social Work from Simmons College. Felicia is fluent in sign language (Pidgin Sign English, Signing Exact English) and proficient in ASL.
